Panda Updates – Monday, August 19

Being able to adapt to a change in routine and come up with a new plan is key when working with animals. This is especially important when working with the giant pandas. For example, there are days where the giant pandas will spend all afternoon sleeping. That’s okay, though! We don’t want to disturb them while they’re sleeping and instead, the Panda Care Team will use this time to work on other projects. Other days, the giant pandas might not prefer the bamboo we’ve put out, so when we bring them in to clean their dens or dayrooms, we’ll make sure to provide more bamboo (or a different species of bamboo) from a different bundle. No matter what comes up during routine, the Panda Care Team is always able to ensure the needs of the giant pandas are met.
